It never occurred to me that Nancy might have living grandparents.
I guess masks can block all sorts of contagions!
Nancy (the strip) has had a bit of an uneasy relationship with the pandemic. I don’t think masks have been needed in the same way they were in, say, Arlo and Janis or Luann or Betty, but it makes it a little weird when they’re needed for the joke.
Curiously, it would have been a fine joke even in non-COVID times.
Is this strip out of order? Was I supposed to just know to read the 2 Nancy panels fist, the 2 Grandma panels next, then the 2 double yawn panels, and lastly the masked panels?
So Nancy has a grandmother. Is this Fritzi’s mother? Do we have any idea who Nancy’s parents were? (And yeah, I’m too lazy right now to look it up online.)
i don’t recall ever seeing her grandmother….when did she pop up?
Damn tryptophan strikes again. ;-)
Innovative use of panel layouts, perhaps not entirely successful. More differentiation between the gag and the pay off panels is needed.
